I must say that I had a wonderful time at the training and I learnt a lot. Lawyers in Anglo-Saxon countries say that the English language is a tool of their trade,yet so many don't use it effectively. The training equipped me with the necessary skills to use English legal writing to communicate more effectively.

For sure, everybody enjoyed the training. It was very nice to hear a native speaker, specially one with such high legal drafting techniques

Excellent course. I recommend the training 'Contract Drafting and Legal Writing'. It gave to me the chance to understand the need of Plain Legal English in contracts as a way to mitigate ambiguity or misinterpretation of a clause. Also the training clarified the context in which Anglo-Saxon Legal System is inserted, since the Brazilian Legal System is in a different one.

Growing your own professional client base – Networking Events

             To become successful as a lawyer requires a number of positive qualities, hard work and, usually, time. You can speed up the process of becoming successful however by building up your own personal following of clients giving you momentum which will bring you and your abilities to the attention of those who can help you in your career or giving you more choices in your career. 

           To become known you will have to meet people and attend events where you are likely to meet new clients and helpful contacts. The initial pitfall which many young lawyers fall into is to assume that effort is the same as progress. It’s not. There is little point in a business lawyer networking and socialising with other business lawyers if the intention was to find new clients. They should instead  be socialising with business organisations where the business clients go. If you want to work in entertainment law then go to every club and restaurant opening you can- its where show business people gather to be seen and photographed and where you are likely to meet new clients. >>>>>
